Invesco has launched their Net Zero Global Investment Grade Corporate Bond Fund for European investors.
Invesco says the fund’s aim is to contribute to the goal of achieving global net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner. It will offer exposure to a global portfolio of corporate credits, focusing on high-quality issuers that meet its net zero framework. It is classified as Article 9 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and will be jointly managed by Lyndon Man, Luke Greenwood, Michael Booth and Matthew Henly.
Lyndon Man, Co-Head of Global Investment Grade Credit at Invesco, says, “the transition to net zero is a global initiative, impacting all sectors and geographies. Our approach acknowledges this and will individually assess corporates we invest in on their alignment with the objective of achieving a successful transition to net zero. We believe that by taking this approach, and by strengthening our engagement with corporates on this journey, we will reach our target”
